Ladies in red

Every girl needs a red dress in her wardrobe! Every celebrity has at least one because they know the power a red dress has to grab attention and make a statement.

I’ve seen a lot of celebrities walk the red carpet of award ceremonies and film premieres in red dresses recently, but they’re not limited to nights out. A smart tailored red dress can also look professional when worn to the office, while a skater dress can be worn every day and take you from day to night if you change your shoes and accessories.

Let’s look at five ways celebrities have worn red dresses to get some inspiration about what styles are available:

Bella Thorne


Bella breezed through the airport looking stunning in a casual skater dress. She’s wearing it with flats to keep it comfortable, but she could add some gold heels if she wanted to go out later. Her dress is like the V by Very scallop back skater dress, which is also a really versatile day to night dress.

Amal Clooney


A red dress can be suitable for work as George Clooney’s beautiful lawyer wife Amal proves. Try the Warehouse zip front shirt dress for an elegant tailored look. To complete the look, the Ted Baker crosshatch lady bag will fit in everything you need for work without ruining the silhouette of your dress. For the final touch, add some Michael Kors oversized sunglasses.

The Duchess of Cambridge


Kate is a big fan of a red dress and the one she is wearing here is like the South split front knotted dress – very classy!

Amanda Holden


The Britain’s Got Talent auditions have started again and all eyes on will be on her outfits. I think she looks gorgeous in this red bodycon dress which reminds me of the V by Very bodycon dress with wrap front. I’d add an extra wow factor with the River Island statement tassel court shoes.

Eva Longoria


Hollywood starlet Eva Longoria is a great example of how glamorous a red dress can look on a night out. The bodycon shape hugs her body in all the right places and reminds me of  the Rochelle Humes halter neck cross pencil dress. Gorgeous!

Do you have enough red in your wardrobe?
